More About This Title Tea at the Grand Tazi


Maia is leaving London to paint in the bright sunlight and exotic surroundings of Morocco. Working as an assistant to a once famous historian, she is lured in by her new surroundings, promising excitement and more importantly, freedom. In the final days of a North African summer, a sense of boredom and unease pervades the city. Maia is drawn unwillingly into the ways in which the clientele of the renowned Grand Tazi pass their increasingly long, hot evenings. As the intense heat wears down her resistance, Maia succumbs to vice. The light that she once sought becomes eclipsed by shadowy dealings. Can Maia take back control of her new life, and if so, does she even want to?
